“30 for 30” (8 p.m., ESPN2). This episode, called, ahem, “Silly Little Game,” chronicles how fantasy baseball grew from a small group of baseball geeks in the ’80s to the multibillion-dollar obsession of millions of baseball geeks today.
“Lost” (9 p.m., ABC). It’s a Jack-centric episode. So who will he see rushed to the E.R. – a wounded Sun? A critically injured Locke? Meanwhile, back on the island, Desmond’s practicing for “The Jessica McClure Story.” (Younger readers, go look it up.)
“Justified” (10 p.m., FX). Raylan searches for missing art after a rich dealer is killed. I’m glad this one is set in Kentucky, but I’m kinda getting tired of the capers of the week. I prefer episodes like last week’s, dealing more with characters and Raylan’s past. Eh, we’ll see how it goes tonight.
“Ancient Aliens” (8 p.m., History). The legacy of alien technology that inspired modern inventions. What? What do you mean that’s not real history?!?
“Glee” (9 p.m., Fox). OK, I got it wrong last week; tonight’s the big Madonna-themed episode.
“Deadliest Catch” (9 p.m., Discovery). Last week’s season premiere had a pretty dramatic rescue from a sinking ship caught on cell-phone video. That’s one way to kick off the season with a burst of adrenaline. Tonight, a storm approaches the fleet and one captain gets fed up with his lippy deckhands.
“Parenthood” (10 p.m., NBC). Julia and Joel are worried their kid has Aspberger’s. Wow, are they recycling plot lines already?
“Chopped” (10 p.m., Food Network). Tonight’s secret ingredients: ground turkey, snap peas, tomatoes and giant eggs. Ehhh, those don’t sound so bad.
“Deadliest Warrior” (10 p.m., Spike). Who’d win in a fight, an American SWAT team or Germany’s GSG-9 anti-terrorist squad? It’s like your “Rainbow Six” fantasies come true!
Watch if you dare
Stanley Cup playoffs: Sharks vs. Avalanche (7 p.m., CSN-CA). Maybe it’s because I’m a gloomy Giants fan whose playoff hopes have been crushed repeatedly over the years, but it looks like the Sharks are choking away their chances yet again. I’d like to believe in them, but I know better.
“Paris Hilton’s British Best Friend” (10 p.m., TVGuide Channel). Too dumb for even VH1.
